We are introduced to the Columbia, San Joaquin, Sacramento, and Colorado Rivers. The emphasis here is what the rivers do for man. So, when we see the Columbia, the emphasis on fishing, moving lumber and dams for irrigation and power. The same treatment is given to the Sacramento and San Joaquin.
Interesting, the Colorado is at first called "useless" because it is not navigatible. Then they talk about the use of irrigation and use for drinking water for LA.
Overall, if you want to know about Pacific rivers in the mid-20th century, this is your film. There are some decent shots of area agriculture and commerce.
